Help Redesign the F Word

The following is a guest post from Jess McCabe of the F Word

I am the editor for the UK online feminist magazine/blog The F-Word. We are trying to raise money for a redesign of the site, and frankly we cannot do it without you: the wider international network of women's rights supporters/womanists/feminists.

Next year The F-Word will be 10 years old. I know that many readers at Womanist Musings are familiar with the site, because we get a steady stream of readers coming our way from this blog, so I hope you don't mind us reaching out like this.

Our current design has served us well, but we want to go into the next 10 years with a fresh, repurposed site, which does even more to create a platform for underrepresented voices. Our new site will be more accessible, more interactive, and generally help us amplify the voices of the 400+ contributors to the site even more.

All of this is going to be expensive - we are working with an excellent company already, Quilted. It is an ambitious target for us, as a grassroots feminist media site which is run only by volunteers. But we can easily reach our target if those who have loved the site over the last nine years chip in a little bit. Every little bit is sincerely appreciated.

Everyone who donates will be listed on a dedicated Thank You page for supporters on the new site - unless you want to be anonymous. Also, everyone who donates will be entered into a prize draw (look out for more info about the prizes on the blog in the coming weeks).
